I went to the Devon County Show yesterday. Lucky with the weather – no rain – I fear that today will be rather different ….. I went to see the judging of the Best in Breed Sheep finals.
Farming can be quite a lonely business, so many farmers love exhibiting their animals at the many local shows. It is a time to meet their neighbours and other farmers to look after the same breeds as them, a chance to compare notes and work out where to buy some new sheep from. Congratulations to all the ‘best in breed’ winners (sheep and owners!) and to Mr Alford – proud moments to win at the Devon County Show and you can see that in his face.
